Regional conferences

ESP regional conferences 2016

At the 8th ESP World conference in 2015, ESP decided to organize ESP World conferences bi-annually, regional conferences are organised during the intermediate years. The aim of these regional conferences is to enable people from all around the world to share ecosystem services knowledge and strengthen local networks.

ESP regional conferences took place in 2016 for the first time on four different continents: Asia, Europe, Latin America and Africa. Check the previous conferences for more information. Also in North America the bi-annual conference with ACES was held.

To learn from this year ESP has compiled a survey report consisting of survey results of the four conferences. Read the survey report regional conferences 2016.

In 2018 ESP will again organise several regional conferences. For Latin America the bid from Brasil has been approved already, for Europe a decision will be made soon. Several bids were received for the other continents but conference pre-proposals can still be submitted. More information regarding the regional conferences will be provided soon.
